DM2E is a European Commission funded project with two primary aims:
- To enable as many content providers as possible to get their data into Europeana
- To stimulate the creation of new tools and services for re-use of Europeana data in the Digital Humanities
Europeana and Building the Open Cultural Heritage community
DM2E will develop the tools needed to convert content from diverse metadata sources into the Europeana Data Model. DM2E will also catalyse an active community of cultural heritage institutions wanting to openly license their metadata and submit it to Europeana through a series of hands-on workshops, scholarships and educational documentation provided through the Open GLAM initiative.
DM2E and the Digital Humanities
DM2E will develop new tools for use within the Digital Humanities community. Italian SME Net7 will lead this work guided by a high-profile Advisory Board.
Work will focus on the development of two cutting edge tools drawn from Net7′s well-know Muruca stack:
- Korbo – an aggregation platform for Europeana Linked Data allowing users to create baskets of cultural content
- Pundit – a light-weight and easy to use semantic annotation tool
Who is involved?
A Consortium of cultural heritage institutions, leading research institutes, SMEs and open data NGOs are behind DM2E. It is led by the Humboldt Universität, Berlin. Visit the partner page for more information.
